fraud we had 235 cases that we had identified before we put this photo i.d. law in place. in this last election the photo i.d. law which as you mentioned is the one of the toughest in the country worked well. 2.2 million cast ballots. of those only 838 forgot to bring a photo i.d. to the polls. that et cetera fewer than 1 in 1,000 voters. they were giive provisional ballots. they came n the vote of election and make their vote out. to date we are not finding anyone who actually didn't have a photo i.d. the bottom line is it's a common sense easy way to prevent some forms of voter fraud and it is a fact that exists. voter fraud is very real in the america. >> you said 235 claims of voter fraud who is making this allegations. >> he'll 235 verified cases been reported between 1997 and 2010. >> and you so -- so you had reported to whom by whom? are they real? are you sure of that? >> yeah. well, and these reported to the county clerks and the cases that couldn't be, you know, were not credible were not included. credible reports of voter fraud to the county clerks or to the secretary of st
. the system where currently 48% of gun sales are private which means under federal law not regulated. >> no background check whatsoever. >> absolutely not. it's like having two different systems at the airport where 60% go through the metal detector and 40% don't. >> i never heard it described that way. that's great. >> we might as well extend it to all gun sales. >> that's a fascinating argument and you are of course right. >> steve barton and eric fuller, thanks, both of you for coming on the program. >> what does it mean and by it, i mean the second >> she gets the comedians laughing... >> that's hilarious! >> ...and the thinkers thinking. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> she's joy behar. ... and current will let me say anything. >> only on current tv. >> a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. what does that mean? joining me to answer is adam winkler, professor of constitutional law. explain it, those few words have sparked co
asked today is it the case of the law that you have to release a 9/1 9/11 dash 911 tape like this or do they keep them private? >> andrea: if a request is made, subpoena to the tape and get reporting they are allowed to because it's part of the public record. once you do the proper steps you can get it. certain case, judge or prosecutor is pending, which we don't have here, because everybody is deceased that was involved in it. they can block it and say it's in the best interest to keep this sealed or out of the public domain. you can imagine a situation like to is very traumatic. this little girl is going to grow up knowing that her father murdered her mother. this tape is out there. it will be on the web. >> dana: any other thoughts about this before we move on? >> greg: it will change the behavior. if you know it will be released, that is the problem. it may prevent people from calling. i never like having them released. if you at a party and someone is in trouble maybe you won't call because you don't want to be involved. >> bob: good point. good point. >> dana: all right. let's mov
if you go up to the manager job. and i mean it's crazy. i -- go ahead. >> no one wants to break the law in the country but we have got to talk about the underground economy and working off the books. that doesn't even take into account a trillion-dollar economy. we have got a government that is both naive and irresponsible. it's got to change. >> bill: real quick, did i pick on this jeffrey hillman guy, the homeless guy? this guy has got his apartment paid for. he has got medicaid. he has got food stamps. he has got it all. there he is in the street. am i being unfair to him? >> i don't think so at all. bill, what you are pointing out is it's extraordinary that our president who spent much of his life as a community organizer is more interested in expanding government than he is in actually organizing and supporting communities which are really the answer to mr. hellman's tragedy. >> bill: solving these kinds of problems. >> absolutely. >> bill: bill o'reilly.com poll question in play do you believe president obama and the republicans will reach a budget deal before automatic tax increa
a gun 12 people wouldn't be dead. the law abiding citizens uh -- obeyed the no gun law, and he didn'tment why don't they address the culture he is a part of and break down in the family. i am not trying to judge the guy, but his baby's mother -- were they not married? that is all present. there is none of that. the violence and the break down of our culture. law abiding people don't do that. >> the other thing too is to go back to the example of aurora you can use the example of o.j. simpson. there was no gun involved in o.j. simpson. there were knives and he got away with it. >> belcher was a rich football player. if you ban handguns with anybody, if he wants to kill somebody with a gun he will get one. >> that's a good point. bill, what is costas' solution for this? if this football player didn't have a gun they would be alive. what is he suggesting? what kind of ban would you do to prevent -- is it no wealthy aggressive football players can have guns? he is calling for a total gun ban. >> no aggressive football players. only the kickers. those are the only ones allowed to have th
is not going to obey the gun laws. they are going to find a gun or find another weapon. >> stretching and shooting to syria and chemical weapons seems like a bit of a stretch. the implications of that is that every american should have access to chemical weapons and nuclear weapons. it will result in weapons ownership. look at europe and the rest of the world. we are way, way out there. we have the highest murder rate in the world. >> abbey, here is what they say to me. each time it is the same debate and nothing gets done about it. 300 million guns and you have between 11 and 12,000 guns and murders a year. britain has 35 as does germany and australia. to countries that have strict gun kcontrol have little gun murder. i think carole had it right. she said it is about personal responsibility. that is the most important part. it is a difficult one. people are going to have an oh w pinion about it. we have to make sure that they were -- wanted the american people to feel protected about the british at the time. i don't think people should be able to go online and buy guns. there should
that could supersede current u.s. laws in some ways and impose mandatory limits on carbon emissions. president obama failed to get a cap-and-trade will pass in his first term. is he quietly planning a new carbon crackdown through other means? joining me now is lou dobbs, host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network. that was one agenda item he could not get through. cap and trade. even when the democrats controlled the house as well, they just couldn't get that through. what would he be doing through the united nations and he could do through the u.s. congress? lou: the efforts that he is undertaking here, so little is known about what we are discussing in qatar, at the meeting of the united nations we are talking about laying out a mission schedule through 2035. without any public discussion, there is nothing about it than a presidential debate, as you know. this could have a mammoth effect on this economy. we are talking about tax levels and also significant pressure on the gdp of this country, the growth rate. and some are saying, it would be a negative to drive the ec
are reacting emotionally to this terrible crime in kansas city. but the problem america has is not law abiding citizens possessing weapons. that's not damaging the nation. crimes committed with handguns and out-of-control people that's what's hurting the u.s.a. you will never stop crimes of madness, you are never going to stop them like the kansas city situation. you can put violent criminals away for a long time if they use a gun during the commission of a crime. and that should be done. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight reaction. joining us from washington mary catherine ham and juan williams from washington. where am i going wrong, juan. >> you said people feel more secure if they are able to own a gun. i have got to say first off the bat, bill. i think you are exactly right about everybody's right to have a gun the supreme court has reaffirmed it. i differ about my understanding what the founding fathers wrote. i think they were writing about a militia. the court sides with bill o'reilly or bill o'reilly sides with the court. we have some guns in this country right now and whe
people on fox think bob costas should be fired. >> there are 20,000 laws already in this country. when they say they shouldn't be fired for casting an opinion talk to bob. >> and hank williams. >> he was fired from the nfl. >> are we comparing wanting gun laws to saying racist things? >> there is a problem though-- >> for people who have opinions. >> cenk: no, no, no, no. we're in the middle of making a nonsense analogy. two guys say outrageous rayist things and the other has a perfectly acceptable political opinion. would anybody argue that somebody should be fired for saying there should be no gun control? of course not. now what is the reality in america? get ahold of this chart. chart of the day. all the lines on the bottom, that's the rest of the worlds, all the lines representing those countries. these are assaults for 100,000 people. see the one off the chart? can you guess what country that is? if you guess finland, you are wrong. we're number one. we're the most violent yes and guns allow that. but after killings from guns, never say a word about it. it's amazing how the n ra
. >> you got all the gun laws in the world, somebody wants a gun, they are going to go get one. it's called crime. >> we want to know what you think of bob costas' gun control lecture at half-time. much more on this very heated controversy coming up later in the show. tonight, what a mess. just hours ago, house republicans sent president obama a new offer to avoid the fiscal cliff, a counter offer to president obama's plan, proposing raising $800 billion from tax reform, not higher tax rates. but the white house immediately slammed the offer and said it won't even consider it. tonight, speaker boehner's response to the white house response, saying it's up to the president to come up with a plan. allen west is here. good evening. >> good evening. >> your thoughts, apparently the white house is unimpressed with the proposal by the speakert and white house republicans? >> i think the white house needs to do case studies, calvin coolidge and president john f. kennedy, when you look at what they did with lowering tax rates and increase revenues. calvin coolidge went from 73% to 24%. john f. kenn
tax writer at new york times and now at the college of law. we have the president and ceo of the center of american progress who served in the obama and clinton administrations, policy director of hillary clinton's campaign. laura flanders, founder of grittv.com. the editor of salon.com and the woman who hired me two years ago. thanks, as always for that. >> of course. >> anyway, on friday afternoon, house speaker john boehner attempted to paint a picture of white house negotiations and how to avoid going over the fiscal curve. i have been saying fiscal slope. now on the show, i'll go with curve. >> this isn't a progress report because there's no progress to report. four days ago, we offered a serious proposal based on testimony from president clinton's former chief of staff. there's been no counter offer from the white house. instead, reports i understand kate the president adopted a deliberate strategy to slow walk the economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff. >> the extremely vague republican proposal did not include an increase in tax rates a position he reiterated on f
for a vote in the senate yesterday and it failed, even though it was modeled on u.s. law, the americans with disabilities act, and that's in spite of it already being ratified by 126 other countries and in spite of the support of former republican senator bob dole who made this rare appearance on the senate floor in a wheelchair. senator's john mccain and john kerry made an emotional plea for the senate to work together. >> he's here because he wants to know that when a disabled american veteran, our wounded warriors travel overseas that they're treated with the same dignity and respect. >> to bob it's unthinkable that americans could not get over a curb or enter a school building or even watch a debate in this chamber if they were in a wheelchair. >> the treaty fell five republican votes short of 66 fleeded. opponents were worried the treaty would fringe on american sovereignty. harry reid will bring it up for a vote again in the next congress. ...and spend time on the slopes. take alka-seltzer plus cold & cough... [ buzz! ] ...and spend time on the chair. for non-drowsy 6-symptom cold
brother-in-law colmes, is that better? >> yeah, right. >> admits that this far out whitlock deal is is insane. but it comes back to the fact that even conservative commentators locked in on the gun thing because they didn't like the way costas put it rather than it's personal responsibility, why aren't we holding all of these people. and not just murderers. but you know when your kid does something like smoke pot or get drunk and then well, everyone is doing it and -- then you give them a pass or her a pass. you are just playing into that whole garbage and it just escalates. >> that's right. i think you are hitting on something really important. you are teasing it out to a bigger cultural problem. for a couple decades now we have seen parents who want to be their kid's friends instead of their parents. they make excuses for the child. he we see it more culturally in the schools where there is not going to be a loser at kick ball. no more winners and losers. you see great inflation. it's permeating everywhere so people feel the sliding scale in the culture where they can get away
with his advisors and this afternoon, he will sign into law the child protection act of 2012. now, that law protects children against child pornography, sexual abuse and sex trafficking by giving law enforcement more power to protect those victims and to go after sexual predators. the law was introduced by john cornun of texas and pass there had on november 26th. hundreds of union members and their supporters are protesting michigan's decision yesterday to rush through right-to-work legislation. the state house and senate approved measures that will prohibit unions from forcing non-union members to pay additional fees. republicans claim that that will boost the economy and jobs. but democrats are calling it an attack on workers' rights. governor rick snyder has previously said that right-to-work is not on his agenda but he does plan on sign that next week. back on capitol hill steven spielberg is slated to attend "lincoln." poems president obama is hosting the event at the capitol visitor senator. after the screening, spielberg and louis along with
laws in the world. somebody wants a gun, they'll go get one. it's called crime. >> greta: we want to know what you think of bob costas' gun control lecture at halftime. go to greta.com and we'll have more coming up in the show. >>> tonight, what a mess. just hours ago house republicans sent president obama a new offer to avoid the fiscal cliff. it is a counter offer to president obama's plan. g.o.p. lawmakers proposed raising $800 billion in revenue from tax reform, not higher tax rates, but the white house immediately slammed the offer and said it won't even consider it, and tonight speaker boehner responds to the white house response saying it's now up to the president to come up with a plan. congressman allen west joins us. good evening. >> how are you doing? >> greta: very well. the white house is unimpressed by the proposal from the speaker and the white house republicans. >> the white house needs to go back and do case studies whe. you look at presidents cool imagidgeand kennedy, they went % down to 24%. kennedy went from 91% down to 71% and they increased revenue. what we'r
he got the gun legally so he wasn't breaking laws being in possession of the firearm at a time. there is fall-out about this because people felt it was inappropriate for him to make the commentary. but he has done it before. >> eric: he editorializes usually on sports. but i saw this tragedy happen. saturday morning. and i saw it. how long before someone, someone uses that pulpit to say it's head drama and something else like gun control? never expected costas to do sunday on sunday night football. big stage. "god bless america" was playing in the background. we have a second amendment right in america to possess handguns. that gun or one of them was acquired legally. costas didn't even say he believes this. he said he agrees with whitlock's assessment of it. jason whitlock assessment of it. can you imagine if he was talking pro-life? the place would be uproar and shut it down. pull the plug on him. are you okay? >> bob: costas is right. the two people would be alive if it wasn't for that handgun in his hand. the culture of violence is out of control. if it was up to me, been a
the gun laws. they are going to find a gun or find another weapon. >> i've heard of some stretches, in my time. but stretching from javon belcher and the shooting in syria and chemical weapons seems like a bit of a stretch. the implications of that is that every american should have access to chemical weapons and nuclear weapons. it will result in weapons ownership. look at europe. look at japan. look at the rest of the world. we are way, way out there. we have the highest murder rate in the world. it hasn't protected us. it has resulted in arguments that should have a consequence of maybe a slap in the face, resulting in a bullet through the heart. it results in a double-murder in this case, a murder/suicide. guns don't protect. they cause suicide. >> let me bring in -- >> they cause suicide? >> i can promise, i'll get back to you, carol. here is what they say to me. i've had it all. but trying to get a debate going. i've been on two years on cnn. in that time, there's been a series of gun rages. each time it is the same debate and nothing gets done about it. 300 million guns and you hav
in america own firearms for lawful protection. you know, you talk about -- >> right, but there is, as you know -- >> -- you never cover self-defense cases that happen all over this country, too, and were in the newspaper. i have a stack of them right next to me here. those never get on your show. you only talk about the people who misuse the guns and never about the people like the 79-year-old grandmother in houston or the young mother in oklahoma who defended her 3 month old baby from intruders coming into her house. there is a good side and a bad side to guns and you focus only on the bad side. >> well, no, i don't, because statistically as you well know, the prevalence of gun incidents when people have guns in the home in a domestic sense where they go off accidentally or they take them against their partners or whatever it may be, is dramatically increased if you have guns in the property. obviously. >> that's not true for normal people. that is true for -- >> you made your point. let's go to josh horowitz to respond. >> well, i think one of the things that's very clear is that guns i
say i love you and a great day. watch out what else you text to family and friends. if law enforcement agency get their way there will be a law to keep your everyone of your private message for two years. those messages can be the key to solving crime. >> steve: does keeping those text violate the constitutional rights? fox news judge nan -- ann said absolutely. >> the government is looking for short cut to keep us safe and request them after a tragedy. so some nut shoots people in er there is a call for gun recall . tragedy with a young boy murdered in rhode island and there was text messages that would have pointed to the true killer and the police seized it and do so unconstitutionally. the whole purpose of the constitution is to protect us from a government that is too strong and aggressive to the point it is arrestting people on a whim and seizing their information on a hunch . the constitution was written to prevent that. the government comes along and police organizations are lobbying the congress for legislation that would require private telecoms and computer servers to retain
. >> greg: that will never happen. >> eric: if you take away guns, law abiding citizens -- how is gun -- >> greg: how is gun control doing in chicago? how is it doing in d.c.? >> bob: they get them from other -- >> greg: you're saying more gun control is less violence. >> bob: have you gotten all of your bumper stickers? >> greg: you just started it. >> eric: the most egregious use of the tragedy may be this. listen. >> i believe the nra is the new k.k.k. they are loading the community with drugs and having an open shooting gallery is the work of people that don't have our best interest. >> okay. that was jason whitlock. the original piece he wrote is the one that bob costas cited when he agreed with jason whitlock. that was whitlock yesterday explaining the piece. now can someone tell me how an afternoon man shooting an african-american -- an african-american man shooting his african-american girlfriend, somehow that racist? >> bob: it's not. it was a bad thing for him to say. but i would raise one other point. that is with all that we are learning about this guy belcher with the tro
, a frank discussion about gun laws and gun violence is a discussion we need to have. thank you for speaking up. one point that he did make, which i thought was very resonating with me during that interview with dan patrick, he said tony dungey when he was head coach of the indianapolis coach, during a training campmeeting, he asked hissers, how many of you in this room own a gun. 65 hands went up. that's when he said the discussion needs to begin. why do 65 nfl football players own guns. >> well, they would say for protection. >> but why? >> these are the kind of things that need to be discussed in country. there's nothing wrong with discussing gun control. hopefully cnn and other organizations will do just that. joe carter, thank you very much. >>> scott kelly is aiming to set an american record. he's expected to talk soon but first let's hear from john zarrella who is joining us live. hey, john. >> reporter: hi, carol. you're looking at the joint press conference that nasa was carrying out in houston and moscow because it will, as you mentioned, be american scott kelly and the russian mik
for ratification of a united nations treaty on the rights of the disabled, which was modeled on a law passed by the senate. 22 years ago, the americans with disabilities act. in effect, it was a vote to export american law to the 155 nations around the world that have signed this treaty. a treaty that has already been ratified by 126 of those countries, including the united kingdom, france, germany, china, russia has ratified it. now you can pass anything in the senate with 60 votes. except treaties which require 66. a two-thirds majority. every democrat voted for the treaty and only eight republicans voted for the treaty. 38 republicans disgraced themselves and disgraced the senate. by voting against it and controlling the outcome. john kerry tried everything he could on the senate floor to show republicans the way to vote for this treaty. >> it really isn't controversial. what this treaty says is very simple. it just says that you can't discriminate against the disabled. it says that other countries have to do what we did 22 years ago when we set the example for the world and passed the am
in that law and we ought to be content to let some of those actually play themselves out before we start messing around with something that's so important to 50 million americans. >> i believe you've pointed out in the past the cuts that were made with medicare are the same cuts that the president was attacked for during the election. >> exactly. these are savings, about a third of which were reducing the subsidy for insurance companies providing medicare advantage programs and the rest of them pretty much cut to providers and we didn't reduce services. we expanded some while leaving money over the long term and the cbo said the affordable care act will save $1.2 trillion. again, we need to be careful what we do with the medicare portion of the social safety net because we've actually made some significant changes that have yet to play out. >> all right. thank you very much, sir. we greatly appreciate your time. >> my pleasure. >> now, ab stoddard, erin mcpike and keith boykin. a.b. let's start with you. let's read what senator demint and senator paul had to say about the proposal of boe
nation's treaty. it does nothing -- doesn't change any existing law, doesn't give it any authority at all in the united states. it doesn't make any new laws in the united states. all the treaty says get this it encourages other nations to give staled people the same rights that they enjoy in the united states. they enjoy in the united states under the americans with disabilities acts with 1990, which bob dole championed and george h.w. bush signed into law. it's a great law that has helped millions of americans: 154 countries, other nations have endorsed this and saying disabled people should have same rights other americans enjoy like they do in the united states of america. it needed add two-thirds vote. john kerry was the champion who carried it on the floor in the house, in the senate and said come on. here is bob dole. he is here for a reason. >> that's why an 89-year-old veteran one week removed from bethesda naval hospital comes back to the senate on an early december day, because it matters. >> bill: and yet, the republicans, what do the
